BUFORD - Parents of an 8-month-old baby want to know how their son wound up in the hands of a stranger when the child's nanny was arrested at the Mall of Georgia.

Fox 5 News in Atlanta reported that 18-year-old Julie Wilson was picked up for shoplifting on Thursday. She had the infant with her, and police allowed Wilson's father to take the child.

The baby's parents said it was that man - and not police - who called them. Erika Vardanian told the television station that she did not know Wilson's father. She wants Gwinnett police to review their protocol.

Gwinnett Police Department Lt. Edwin Ritter told reporters that protocol does require a child to be handed over to a parent or legal guardian. He said it was possible the officers were led to believe the suspect's father was a legal guardian. Ritter said the matter is under investigation.
